dc.description Greek, Late Archaic Period, Magna Graecia, Tarentum, Italy, c. 480 B.C.E.
dc.description Head from a votive statue of Persephonē from the end of the Archaic Period. The nose is small and rectangular and rises between eyes which have received much abuse, the left nearly being entirely hacked away. The indentation representing the lips is barely visible and the ears have mostly eroded away, the left marred by a long and deep gash. The hair is styled high and faced with a small crown. The original statue may have been used in rituals relating to funerary rites or involving votive offerings. Likely a plaster reproduction.
